2016 Guests of Honor

Anthrocon 2016 is pleased to welcome Trevor Devall, Tracy Butler, and Joaquin Baldwin!
Award-winning animation genius Joaquin Baldwin left his native Paraguay to study at the UCLA Animation Workshop, where he produced three animated shorts which won over 130 awards and honors at Cannes, The Student Academy Awards, The Student Emmys, Cinequest, USA Film Festival, Cinanima, Angelus, Sedona, Ashland, BendFilm, and many others. This amazingly talented animator is currently a layout artist at Disney Animation. We are very glad to welcome Mr. Baldwin.
A native of Edmonton, Canada, Trevor Devall spent fifteen years in Vancouver's voice-over industry as an animation and commercial voice actor before relocating to Los Angeles. He is a prolific voice artist, having performed in hundreds of animated productions including television movies, series, feature films and video games. You may have heard his voice recently as Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's animated Guardians of the Galaxy. He also provided the voice of several characters including Admiral Ackbar and Jar Jar Binks in Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles. Most furry fans who are also Bronies will recognize him as Iron Will, Hoity Toity, Thunderlane and Fancy Pants (for which he was nominated for a UBCP Award for Best Voice) on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Anthrocon is proud to welcome for its twentieth convention such a talented artist with such an extensive "furry" resume!

Originally from Massachusetts, illustrator and graphic designer Tracy Butler found herself living in a century-old house in St. Louis. Its history fascinated her, and as she delved into the stories that the old house had to tell, the world of Lackadaisy Cats began to grow in her imagination. Since 2006 she has been telling - and drawing - riveting tales of felines living and working (not always honestly) in the USA in the era of Prohibition. Her characters are masterfully developed: strong yet vulnerable, always endearing but sometimes downright scary. We hope that she will feel very much at home as Anthrocon itself takes a step back in time to celebrate "The Roaring Twenty."
